Later, the star confirmed on Instagram that her daughter India, who is only 3 years old, played an important part in the proposal: “On Friday morning, on their way to the duck pond, Max asked India for her permission to ask her mummy to marry him. I love you Max – you bring out the best in me. I’m so lucky ❤️.”
American rapper and philanthropist, Jeezy, proposed to his girlfriend Jeannie Mai in March, just as the world went into lockdown. The ring he gave to Mai is an ultra-luxurious marquise diamond pictured below. It’s a rock that definitely belongs to this list of best celebrity engagement rings of 2020!
The rapper had been planning to propose to Mai during a trip to Vietnam. But due to the outbreak of COVID-19 he surprised her instead with a special Vietnamese-themed date night proposal at home in Los Angeles.
